100 Treasures celebrates the inauguration of the Faculty Art Museum at Macquarie University, NSW, Australia. This entirely new volume focuses on 100 works from a vast collection of 15,000 objects, to highlight the new museum's focus on social history and the human condition beyond the borders of space and time.
A thought-provoking, visual feast, which presents a diverse range of art objects to build emotional bridges between art objects and the viewer within a social history context. This story is told through a mixture of short essays and colour plates of 100 selected objects drawn from across five continents and over the course of 5,000 years. These objects range from fragments of an ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead, to a WWI era Turkish Star medal, and have been chosen by Museum staff and Macquarie scholars to achieve a representative and rigorously researched survey of human experience and creativity over five millennia.
Professor Martin Bommas, coordinates short essays on each of the 100 selected objects by a broad range of academic authors, complemented by entirely new photography of the objects commissioned from award-winning photographer Effy Alexiakis.
Professor Martin Bommas is director of the Museum of Ancient Cultures and the Qubbet el-Hawa Research Project at Macquarie University. Effy Alexiakis, who has over 25 years experience as a photographer for Macquarie University, and has taught photography at various institutions, mainly at the Australian Centre for Photography and at various TAFE colleges.
